Hyperspace Challenge follows a unique model of in-person and virtual meetings. Teams are asked to commit three hours to meet virtually before the start of the program in a series of webinars with government innovators. These meetings help teams further understand agencies’ needs and determine how their technology can address these needs.
After the webinar series, teams should plan to spend approximately five hours to develop their accelerator application. Applications should explain how a company’s or research team’s technology can respond to specific mission needs.
If a team’s application is selected to participate in Hyperspace Accelerator Week, prepare to virtually attend three to four onboarding and educational webinars. Teams should also allow time to plan travel and logistics, and conduct further research into their responses to mission needs. Teams may also want to allow some time to research potential data sets that might help demonstrate technological capabilities during the Hyperspace Accelerator Week.
